VICTORIAN TILED CAST IRON GAS HEATER FOR SALE

RIGHT. Circa 1885, a beautiful cast iron gas fire, rear-flued by a Mr T Fletcher of Warrington. I know that as his name is cast into the very detailed ironwork.


Lovely inlaid tiles and an intricate tubed heat-exchanger that would make this very efficient. I’d say this could be made to work by a competent gas fitter.


Imagine it once it’s had some ‘fire-black’ applied. - Something I really should do...


There’s some interesting history regarding Mr  Thomas Fletchers business here:

BELOW. Lovely 1930s illuminated sign. A rare survivor. 23 x 13 x 7” deep, All original and shown working. I’m seemingly incapable to take a decent picture so bear in mind it’s only a reflection below the C and also under the K of tickets. Very sturdily made and easy to mount via it’s top and bottom flanges. I’d strongly advise it being rewired as it has  the orginal rubber covered wires which are brittle. A simple job for a sparks.

I have a particular affection for these buses. As a kid I’d get a Red Rover ticket and often take the 251 from Arnos Grove station up to Burnt Oak, have a wander around and return. That ‘all day’ ticket cost 2/6d or half a crown, [or 12.5p to you youngsters]!

I was delighted to supply the new London Underground themed bar Cahoots in Carnaby Street London with many artefacts to help set the scene!
